Benefit of eating carrots

Shared from  healthyeatingcom

Carrots contain beta-carotene, a pigment molecule that breaks down into two vitamin A molecules. Your body uses vitamin A to control cell growth and development. The vitamin helps your cells mature so that they can help to make up functional tissue. Vitamin A also helps fight infection — it keeps your skin healthy to prevent pathogens from entering your system. Eating 1 cup of chopped carrots provides you with 10,605 micrograms of vitamin A, which is far more than the 900 micrograms required daily for men or 700 micrograms for women, according to the Linus Pauling Institute.

Vitamin K

Getting enough vitamin K helps your body respond to injury. It helps your body form blood clots to prevent abnormal bleeding. Vitamin K deficiency causes spontaneous nosebleeds, abnormal bruising and bleeding long after injury. A cup of chopped carrots contains 16.9 micrograms of vitamin K. This represents about 19 percent of the recommended daily intake for women or 14 percent for men, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Vitamin B-6

Eating carrots contributes to your daily intake of vitamin B-6, or pyridoxine. This vitamin aids in the function of your nervous system. It allows your brain to make neurotransmitters, the chemicals that nerve cells use to communicate. Getting enough pyridoxine also helps your body make hemoglobin, a protein your red blood cells need to carry oxygen. Adults ages 19 to 50 need 1.3 milligrams of vitamin B-6 daily, according to the Linus Pauling Institute, while men and women ages 51 or older need 1.7 or 1.5 milligrams, respectively. Each cup of chopped carrots contains 0.18 milligram of vitamin B-6.

Cooking Ideas

Try cooking grated carrots into your oatmeal and then topping it with maple syrup, raisins and a sprinkling of chopped walnuts for carrot cake oatmeal. Combine steamed baby carrots with steamed snow peas, mint and an apple cider vinaigrette for a refreshing warm salad. Add leftover steamed carrots to your smoothies to boost the nutrient value of your beverage, or juice raw carrots along with apples and beets for a fresh and vibrant juice that comes packed with essential nutrients.

I found this recipe in an old cookbook several years ago and really like the roll. I love trying new recipe and remaking to make my own recipe. I hope you will try this  and will enjoy as much as my family.

Combine together 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar

1 package  Quick dry yeast

1/2 tsp salt

Add to this 3/4 cup warm water

4 tbsp. butter

Mix with mixer until dough  is very smooth about 6 to 8 min.It will look silky.

Let dough set covered for 15 to 20 min. and then shape into 12 to 14 balls.

Place in baking pan sides touching .A pie or cake tin works great.

Let rise covered until they reach almost to top of pan.

Heat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden.

I brush butter on mind before baking and again after baking. now if you want a pretty shiny gloss, beat I egg with 1 tsp. water and brush before baking add poppy seed or any herb you would like mixed with some butter when they come out of oven. Also honey and butter mixed are a good way to serve, for the holidays pumpkin spiced added to the butter honey would be delicious.  I always have to make 2 batches. they are delicious   Please Like & Share . ♥ Twitter@mwilliams6337
